Honoring National Constitution Day

In honor of Constitution Day, we welcome you to join Professor Philip Swan of the Library Department to explore primary source resources relating to the United States Constitution and the Founding Era on Thursday, September 28, between 1-2PM in room 530 in the Toby Cooperman Library.
